Marge Terhar: 2012 HALO Award Volunteer Winner from MEND
The Carl & Roberta Deutsch Foundation continues to be inspired by angels in the community, both the volunteers who go above and beyond to promote the betterment of their communities and the nonprofit organizations whose work motivates and supports such volunteers. The Foundation finds the special partnership between volunteers and nonprofits compelling. It is the Foundation's hope that the Halo Award will inspire more community members to make a difference through long-term volunteer commitments.
HISTORY OF THE AWARD
The Halo Award began with a desire to reward volunteers doing exemplary work in their communities. The original idea grew to include a critical capacity building piece focused on strengthening nonprofit volunteer programs in Greater Los Angeles. The dual purposes of the award emphasize and celebrate the partnership between individual volunteers and the nonprofits with whom they work.
